I've tried SoyJoy Bars before, and I had the same reaction Tanya expressed in her SoyJoy review - ew! What the hell am I eating?! The ones of these I've had before were dry, tasteless, and just all-around disgusting (including the SoyJoy Peanut Chocolate Chip Bar that Marina reviewed). However, I decided to give them another shot - I mean, there has to be at least one tasty flavor around, right?! So I picked up a SoyJoy Blueberry Bar amd hoped for the best.
This bar kind of surprised me. Sure, it was DRY and oddly chewy - I can't quite tell what the company is thinking with their dense, over-baked bars. Still, the flavor was pretty ... good ! It tasted like a chewy, dense, soy-y blueberry muffin or cake. Interesting... I definitely liked this WAY better than the flavors I've had before.

You can get Soy Joy Blueberry Bars at Amazon.com, $13.40 for a 12-pack, but I would probably only buy this only occasionally, and only one at a time, and only when none of my other favorite bars are available. But I have to say, I was quite pleasantly surprised with this flavor ... meaning that this flavor wasn't bad - and it's really not a good thing for SoyJoy that I was expecting the worst. I'm also not a fan of small bars, because they in no way make a dent in any kind of hunger.
